A former bodyguard for Michael Jackson is claiming that he is the biological father of Jackson’s youngest son Blanket, real name Prince Michael II, and is willing to take his plight to the courts to prove it.
Matt Fiddes, who served as Jackson’s security guard in the United Kingdom, claims he gave the singer a sperm donation in 2001 after a discussion about Michael wanting “athletic” children, just a year before Blanket was born.
According to the Daily Star, the martial arts expert said: “I am going to lodge my DNA and formally ask the Jacksons for access. I want visitation rights. Michael is their father and I do not want that to change, but I want the children back in my life. The only way that’s going to happen is through legal action. I think Blanket is mine but I want final proof.”
Fiddes also claims he turned down over $800,000 that Michael offered him for the donation, which he believes is proof that he’s not just after money.
“All I want is access if he’s my child, to take him out, and spend some time together,” he said. “My mum is dying of cancer. I want her to see Blanket more than anything.”
